    Scranton School Taxes to Go Up

    SCRANTON — One of the largest school districts in our area is at serious risk of default. School board members in Scranton say that’s because there still is no state budget. It led the Scranton School District to approve a property tax hike. Property owners in the city of Scranton will pay more in school taxes next year and school board members blame the state budget stalemate in Harrisburg. Meanwhile, taxpayers in the city are preparing to pay more and […]

    Harrison Avenue Bridge: From The Bottom Up

    SCRANTON — PennDOT is about half way through the biggest bridge project the city of Scranton has seen in almost a century.

You may not have seen the work going on in Scranton because most of it is going on 150 feet below the road. The new bridge will replace one about 90 years old that goes over the Roaring Brook gorge.

    SCRANTON — Members of a neighborhood watch in Scranton overcame a big hurdle this month. The group purchased a vacant property in the city’s west side and plans to turn it into a community center: While many people pass the plain building on Washburn Street in Scranton and see decay, members of the West Scranton Neighborhood Watch see potential. Rooms there could be a learning center; the warehouse in the back is perfect for a multi-purpose gym. That’s what West […]

    Could The Globe Become Lackawanna County Offices?

    Carbondale’s Masonic Temple Comes Down

For about 15 decades, the Carbondale Masonic Temple stood over Salem Avenue, its last decade the saddest of its long history. The building’s been off limits since 2004 when its exterior started to fall apart. Many blame an absentee landlord. “We actually were on the roof several years ago,” recalled […]

    Unseasonably Warm Weather Means Savings For Businesses

    SCRANTON — This unusually warm December has its pros and cons. Ski resorts would love cold and snow, but other businesses say the warm weather is benefiting their bottom line. Downtown Scranton boasts buildings with a certain century-old charm. That charm, however, comes at a price. “It’s pretty darn drafty. In a bad year this building, just the Albright alone, can run $8,000-$10,000 a year just for heat,” said Jack Finnerty, Director of Albright Memorial Library. Finnerty said every dollar […]
